This mani is a hodgepodge of things I had been wanting to do for a while. I put off some more intricate nail art to swatch all my Mentality polishes and work with the Born Pretty Store decals I was sent…and Jamberry…I really love reviewing but sometimes I can’t find time to do the crazy manis that involve lots of colors!
This was originally going to just be on a pale or nude background, but I couldn’t decide between orange, pink, or purple…so I just made a gradient! The pink was a bit thinner of a formula than the others, so it didn’t come across quite as well in the gradient.
The design is modeled after Madah Santana. However, I don’t have a thin enough brush to do exactly what she did, so I settled on my own version! I am really glad I picked up a new bottle of black polish, this would have been impossible with my thick chunky older one.
~ White: Salon Perfect – Sugar Cube
~ Orange: Maybelline – Citrus Collide
~ Pink: Wet n’ Wild – Ticked Pink
~ Purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
I don’t know if this is quite a tribal mani (it is more swoopy than hard angles) but I couldn’t think of where else it fit! Anyway, I hope you enjoyed! All of next week’s manis are ones that I’ve done on other people over the course of the last 8 months or so…I ran out of my own! Some are awesome, some need work. So stay tuned for some friends and sibling nails!
